either because they are frustrated or because they want to get more training or education. some people are finding jobs. economists have looked at different calculations of which is the better factor -- the bigger factor, or people dropping out or getting more education and training and my understanding is that there are equal roles being played by each for spirit -- each force. but there are definitely some dropping out. some of that is the baby boom generation starting to retire. it may not be a "dropping out," but people choosing to retire and leave their jobs. some older people may have lost their jobs and cannot find new ones and are taking early social security benefits. there is some of that. host: mr. r doane, the labor force participation -- mr. nardone, a labor force position rick, please explain this. guest: the take the people who are employed in those who are unemployed and combine them and you get what is called the labour force. divide that by the population in at 16 and over and you're of the force participation rate. is the proportion of the population that is either e

of all the republicans that run to the middle. he made an effort in the policies he proposed. education -- >> his choice on how to compete with al gore was to have a prescription benefit for medicare. there is no mine versus yours. >> this whole idea of -- i roll my eyes when i see romney shifted to the middle. he has not in any substantive way. he is simply articulating moderate sounding policy outcomes that he knows sound pleasing to swing voters. swing voters want the debate on preexisting coverage. they want more teachers. he's articulating those kinds of goals but he has used to provide any way of getting there. the policy remains the same way on taxes. 20% across the board. nothing has really changed. he's just sort of taking this shortcut. and his opponent didn't call him on it. >> let's listen to this moment yet on "meet the press" which is about the tax issue and what's changed on it with romney. >> you've got to look carefully at how romney's structure, what he said is something that frankly true supply siders don't necessarily love. but it's good politics. he said i will clos

to get out of playing this game? it's fun and a little educational. what is the point? >> really educational, right? it's really fun. no. the truth is i want people to focus on the economic issues. it's all about the debates. the country does face a lot of really serious fiscal issues. if not immediately, although we have created this artificial crisis in the fiscal cliff. it's really boring. people don't want to necessarily focus on how to make entitlement spending work. what do i care about 30 years if i'm 50? maybe it doesn't matter. so the economic team is really important to fixing this. and it's my view basically whoever wins, whether it's obama or romney, is basically going to have one big docier flopped in their lap. it's either we've gone over the fiscal cliff and have you to deal with it in reverse, or we've kicked the can down the road and done a patch that gets us to july 4th to be patriotic and we have another physical cliff to not go over. to do that you have to reach across the aisle and work with democrats and republicans to get something done. so that, to me, is
